Berry Sensation Smoothie

low glycemic recipeAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
Blueberries are a low-glycemic fruit full of anti-oxidant, blood vessel-strengthening, eye and brain-protecting flavonoids. Raspberry boasts similar anti-oxidant flavonoids, along with a couple of unique compounds: ketones, which appear to have a stimulating effect on our cells’ metabolism, and ellagitannins, which have a potent inhibitory effect on certain cancer cell lines, at least in vitro.






Research from the USDA showed that organic raspberries boast great anti-oxidant activity (which makes sense—since flavonoids and other goodies are a plant’s natural herbivory defense compounds). Also, buy and pick ripe raspberries—research out of Cornell University shows they have more of the good stuff. Pineapple is the source of the anti-inflammatory compound bromelain. If pineapple doesn’t agree with you or bothers your mouth, leave it out!

Ingredients

8-12 oz of water, coconut, hemp, almond or brazil nut milk
1⁄4 c raw cashews (best soaked overnight; discard soaking water)
1 c mixed blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry, fresh or frozen
1⁄2 organic pineapple (or papaya, if preferred), fresh or frozen
1-2 tsps flax seeds (best if ground)
1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Divine Turmeric Paste
1 serving Protein Powder of choice  (we recommend NutriBiotic’s organic, raw sprouted brown rice protein OR Great Lakes Hydrolyzed Collagen)

Directions

Wash all ingredients well and blend!

Yes, this dries up poison oak.

I tried it after the rash did not go away for 2 weeks. It rapidly retreated, and gone.

LOVE!

Tried the lavender moisture cream this morning and it went on so beautifully, easy and almost satin-like. My face feels so nourished, soft it feels so good. Best moisturizer I have applied in a very long time.

Astaxanthin

This is my first time trying this product, and because I am taking it for inflammatory joint pain, I have seen some definite alleviation of my discomfort since I started taking it over a week ago. I am also taking it with Tumeric and Resveratrol (all three formulas twice a day), so I am not sure weather my relief is totally due to the Astaxanthin or the combination of herbs. Still I will continue along this path, since it is very much helping my hips and lower back. I would recommend others give it a try and if needed add the two additional anti-inflammatory combinations. I find it a better alternative to NSAIDs and other meds that cause gastric issues.

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!
